Sub Zero - FABRICLIVE x Playaz Mix

Something of an unstoppable force over the last decade, Sub Zero has become a very powerful weapon in the Playaz label’s arsenal. Repeatedly impressing and testing the limits of the Martin Audio soundsystem in Room One at the monthly Playaz residency at Fabric his production has seemingly splintered with him proving himself to be just as adept at making pensive, lightweight, hoover bass driven thought provoking tracks as he is carving out his trademark arresting jump up dancefloor shells – something he proved culpably on his Bi Polar EP.

The authors of the mix are Andrew Bowen and Dimitri Ploumpidis, publicly known as AnD, electronic music producers, sound designers and Djs based in Manchester. Bowen is originally from Belfast and Ploumpidis is from Thesaloniki but they both have distinct temperaments matured by their completely different social and cultural environments. While one is very impatient, the other one is extremely calm and relaxed. However, this kind of situation adds more color and sensation into their unexpectedly harmonious collaboration. Bowen started collecting records and went to various “raves” in the late 90s and this was probably the essential turning point in his career that indirectly lead him to meet Ploumpidis, who had a great interest in D.I.Y. electronic instruments as he is a certificated designer of electronic circuits. The duo’s paths crossed when they were studying music production at the School of Sound Recording. Step by step they have developed their unique moving sound, permeated with industrial music motives and quickly immersed into intense world of techno. The last 5 years were enormously productive for the duo, they have released numerous records on such conceptual and constantly growing labels as Electric Deluxe, Modal Analysis, Geoff Presha’s Samurai Horo, Black Sun Records, Repitch Recordings, Horizontal Ground and others. Recently they have opened Inner Surface Music, a 100% vinyl imprint to release other artists’ promising recordings.
nD’s personal production stands on the powerful and dense sound dynamics, reasonable distortions and colossal rhythm structures. They are exploring the limitations of computer generated music and also include a wide palette of sounds generated with diverse analog synths, drum machines and effect blocks. Important to mention that some of the devices are constructed on the basis of D.I.Y. principles, and this gives more authenticity to their whole musical identity. Ploumpidis in one of the interviews about AnD’s music production concept stated that “there is calm before the storm” and we should say that this is a very scenic explanation which unveils why their embossed compositions, balancing between tough beats and the elegance of background ambiance, are so manoeuvrable and at some parts have beatless moments similar to soundtracks used in theater. Their prominent and critically acclaimed EPs such as “Bow”, “FVS” or “Kundalini” are a good start to familiarize with AnD’s musical intention and philosophy. It is also important to say that the duo often tours across the globe – Berghain, Fasma Festival or Boiler Room are only a few grand places where the listener could catch them performing live.
AnD wasn’t following ideas of their previous mixes for Electric Deluxe or Resident Advisor. They took an alternative direction and put together more eclectic mix full of splendid musical treasures to reveal their profound personalities. “Secret Thirteen Mix 116” is an enigmatic and subtly thrilling audio compilation weaving 27 abyssal and scenic records released between 1975 and 2014. This mix includes a wide spectre of music by such gifted musicians as Peder Mannerfelt, Ø, Muslimgauze, Cabaret Voltaire, Chris & Cosey, Jeff Mils and others. Patient and accurate mixing followed by the thoughtful emotional and structural development creates a continuous wholeness and also clearly shows AnD’s precision, dexterity, understanding of aesthetics and attentiveness to even the smallest details. John Cato’s abstract photograph “Double concerto #13” could easily be placed in parallel with AnD’s mix, as both of them hold the weight of systematic chaos and artistic effect, and forces to design countless of interpretations in the subconsciousness.

"Metalheadz proudly present a very special edition of MDZcast. For number 46 we have long-time sparring partners Jubei and SP:MC live in the mix.

It’s important to note that this partnership was initially forged back in the late 90s, with Jubei [then DJ Breakz] & SP honing their then raw talent with a series of mixes straight to tape. It was one of their later efforts in 2001 which found it's way to the legendary MC GQ which earned them their first London residency @ Dingwalls, Camden Lock. Fast forward to 2014, the pair have toured the world, represented the finest crews
in the game and collaborated alongside best in the business."

Auxcast Promo Mix [May 2014]

ASC and Sam KDC have put together a promo mix of sorts for Auxcast Volume Two. You can grab it for free HERE.

Meanwhile, Auxcast Volume Two is out now on CD and digital. Auxcast is the monthly Auxiliary podcast that has been running for the past few years now. After the initial series ended, the label set about compiling a CD that featured some of the best unreleased tracks from the podcasts. Volume Two does exactly the same, choosing some gems from Phase Two of the Auxcasts. Auxiliary's core artists are all in fine form and faves from ASC, Sam KDC, Method One and Synth Sense all feature. There's new bits from New Zealand's deepest, RQ as well as an exclusive from antipodean dub wizard, Nether. Adam Elemental also makes a return to the series, as he introduces his other guise, Clear Skies for this outing. Finishing off the guest appearances is Central Industrial, with more cyberpunk inspired sci-fi soundscapes. Another essential outing from the label that redefined deep.

Calibre is Dominick Martin, a drum and bass producer originally from Belfast who's been producing tracks since 1995.

Over the course of his career he's released 10 abums, more full length releases than any other drum and bass artist. His most recently album Shelflife 3 came out in March on his own label Signature Recordings, so the British Council thought they'd get him In The Mix.

DRS & Marcus Intalex - Mid Mic Crisis Mix For FABRICLIVE

As a prelude to the upcoming Soul:ution Room Two takeover on Friday May 16 2014 at Fabric, label boss Marcus Intalex and one of Manchester’s most reliable renegade emcees, DRS, have bumped consciousness and put together this, their ‘Mid Mic Crisis’ mix. Regular sparring partners in clubs the world over, DRS’ trademark measured Mancuian flow rides perfectly atop on Intalex’s soulful selection with his baritone delivery sitting sweetly and filling out the dynamic range of the rolling selections which reportedly feature, in some form, material from DRS’ forthcoming second album, Mid Mic Crisis.

Basically it’s a glorious and specifically tailored 62 minute mixtape showcase of DRS’ potency as a host, an emcee and a vocalist. But it comes mixed by Intalex which more than hints at the level of quality it contains... two of Manchester's finest in sterling form.

SUNANDBASS Podcast #24 - Nu:Tone

Nu:Tone steps into the fray for SUNANDBASS Podcast #24.

The Drum and Bass landscape would be quite a different place without Dan Gresham. After a number of 12’s and the defining ‘Future Sound of Cambridge’ EP on Hospital in 2004, Dan has since graced our ears with 3 Nu:Tone albums and also a Nu:Logic album with his brother and sparring partner, Logistics.

Just the shear wealth of music cannot be ignored, but the quality control that he has managed to maintain throughout is beyond impressive. He is certainly an artist that Drum and Bass needs to be thankful for, bringing musicality, soul and depth, yet also a distinct ear and knowledge for what the dancefloor requires.

His DJing is no exception to this, and his SUNANDBASS podcast shows it in spades. Touching all bases, musical, halftime, deep, dancefloor – this podcast has something for everyone, so dive right in.

Track list:

Stray – Award Tour
Roy Green & Protone – Folded
Hidden Turn – Big Dirty

Luke Vibert has been releasing music since the early ’90s, drawing from the approach and aesthetics of UK hardcore, hip-hop and acid house, and charting a course across several pseudonyms – including Wagon Christ and Plug, two of Vibert’s most celebrated projects that are still trucking today (both released records - Toomorrow and Back On Time, respectively – as recently as 2011).

Vibert has long been a slave to acid house, even championing the We Love Acid clubnight featured in FACT last week (named after a 2003 single of Vibert’s, ‘I Love Acid’), and Ridmik is described as a “very personal project”, with the TB-303 “providing a common thread throughout the eleven tracks”.

Vibert’s FACT mix isn’t quite acid all the way, but it does draw from oddball electro, classic hip-hop and, yes, 303 funk – the sort of things that Vibert fans are sure to love.

Hypercolour will release Ridmik on April 7 2014.

The brainchild of childhood friends Rachel Goswell and Neil Halstead, Slowdive emerged as the ’80s became the ’90s, and by 1991 had been firmly lumped in with the shoegaze scene of the era – or, as it was coined in Melody Maker, “the scene that celebrates itself”. Come 1992, the shoegaze backlash was in full effect, with Manic Street Preachers’ Richey Edwards famously declaring “we will always hate Slowdive more than we hate Adolf Hitler”.

In 1995, Slowdive were dropped by Creation following the release of the third album Pygmalion.

Time, however, is a hell of a healer, and the year since Slowdive’s break-up have seen them rightfully reevaluated: a shy counterpoint to My Bloody Valentine’s distorted bombast, and a treasure of early ’90s British pop. This year, the group followed many of their peers by reuniting – announcing a set of live shows, including an appearance at Barcelona festival Primavera Sound and telling FACT that ”we are all super thrilled to be back together again after 20 years and can’t wait to get started!”

Slowdive’s FACT mix, we’re told, “followed a discussion we all had at a rehearsal in February about what artists and tracks have influenced us as a band and also what tracks would sound great included in a new Slowdive mix.”

“Maybe some of the more well known choices, such as The Smiths, Sonic Youth, The Byrds and Brian Eno for example, are pretty obvious to listeners but they are also great songs by some of our favourite artists that had a profound influence on us all as aspiring musicians. We still think all these songs sound amazing and important to Slowdive as a band.”

“The Cure, Can, The Stooges, This Mortal Coil (and The Cocteau Twins) and My Bloody Valentine we all grew up respecting and still admire. It’s hard to ignore how some of these bands have helped shape our sound. Spiritualzed (and Spacemen 3), Swans, Dinosaur Jnr and Bark Pychosis we also have been fascinated with since they began sonically expanding our minds when we were still teenagers. Syd Barrett, Nick Drake and Bert Jansch, who are all sadly no longer with us, offer an acoustic tinge to the mix. The simple melodies, majestic melancholy and emotional aspects of these songs we never tire of.”
